with the united states to overturn gadhafi and police libya these last years but opened relationships with al qaeda and the darkest elements of the jihadists. there's suggestion ambassador stevens was murdered in revenge for the death of a libyan hero to the al qaeda forces al-libbi killed by a drone strike june 4th. >> john, what you're saying is round up the usual suspect, you're saying they have not really caught the perpetrators who killed ambassador stevens? >> the perpetrators are al qaeda and the jihadists of the uma. it's a vast organization. >> thank you for that. let me go to paul wulff wits, former deputy secretary of defense. thank you for coming back on the program. what's your take on this? president obama said no act of terror will go unpunished. he said we're going to bring them all to justice. what happens now? how do we bring them all to justice? >> clearly, we're talking about libya, it will happen with the cooperation of the libyans. one of the important things to put in context here, it's almost lost in everything i've heard is back in july the libyans had a pretty fair e
for the united states coming on and misleading the public. basically we have sent a letter to ambassador rice to explain herself. >> you know, there's a story out today, i didn't know if you saw it, senator, but the story essentially was that the united states government within 24 hours knew it was a pre-planned terrorist attack. your thought on that. because that indicts rice and whomever else was in this cover-up even more. >> that's right. ambassador rice came on the sunday morning programs and said that, in fact, it was a spontaneous reaction of course to the video. and in no way was an expression of hostility toward america. and you have to say killing four american heroes, quite honestly, attacking our consulate, if that's not hostility toward america, i don't know what it is. so, no, i think it's pretty apparent that the administration must have known, had information, and ambassador rice was sent out on the sunday programs to mislead the american public. i find that outrageous, and i think she needs to explain herself and explain herself fast. we should also call for an investigation.
of the president of the united states. he deflects it and he attacks romney admitting this is a botched statement, holding the egypt government responsible for something like this is absolutely something they need to do if they want to have continued cooperation from the united states. >> and i want to ask peter brooks, old friend, so hillary says today in her comment that we reject these acts, quote, unquote, we reject these actions, but the president says later we will bring to justice. how he's going do that, i don't know. we will bring them to justice, peter brooks. what the hell does that mean? would you please tell me because to me, he is more interested in promoting these muslim states running through the art than he is promoting american influence and leadership in that region. that's what's got me really bugged, peter. how is he going to bring them to justice? >> i certainly can't channel president obama. i'm not the right person to do that. what i hope he means here is that the government of libya does not bring these guys to justice that we're going to take action including military ac
leaders who are signaling they're coming to the united states to the u.n. general assembly and they express the desire through their ambassadors to the state department they want to meet with the president. and those options are then put before the national security adviser, and he decides whether or not to make any recommendation to the president on who to meet. well, it's quite clear that either he didn't make any -- either he made recommendations that there's no reason to meet with anybody, or he did make recommendations and the president said, in a, i don i d want to meet them, i'll give a speech and then get to ohio. >> just to follow up on this, i'm thinking of the netanyahu story with israel and iran. one of the key issues, we had professor from harvard law school is whether the united states will truly decisively back up netanyahu and israel militarily. now, with all respect to hillary clinton who is doing a fine job on this stuffy imagine, it's only the president who can make a statement like that.imagine, y the president who can make a statement like that. only th
the west and the united states and it's interests. >> all this flag burning, american flag burning, which burns me up, probably burns you up just as much if not more. should been united states retaliate in some way for this flag burning? >> well t short answer is, it's more important than just defending the flag, it's defending our interests and our national requirements in that region. we have got to get engaged. we have got to get reengaged because if we don't, we're going to see more and more of this. >> many thanks, general mark kimet stayed up late for us in germany. i'm larry kudlow, we will see you tomorrow night.

. it is ludicrous. it's a lie and the president of the united states needs to come before the american people and explain to them what did he know? when did he know it? and why has he and senior officials been lying. >> is jack jacobs here. welcome. i want to bring you in. we have been talking about this whole situation. it looks, to me, like this was a major security breakdown. the intelligence people told them that this was with a pre-planned al qaeda terrorist attack within 24 hours of the awful killing of our ambassador and the other people with them. and the white house denied and denied it and are still denying it and i say susan rice should be fired. she should resign and i'm asking jack, up the chain of command, what is hillary clinton's role and what is president obama's role? >> well, let me tell you, everybody is responsible for everything that happens in his unit or fails to happen. the state department has a great deal to answer for. there's no doubt in my military mind this was a pre-planned attack. if you look at it as a small unit operation, they had mortars that they shot, co
of the united states, but is that enough 46 days before the election? also tonight, so the president says he has come to learn that you can't change washington from the inside. reminder that he ran in 2008 as an outsider, pitching change against senator john mccain. learn learned, what else has the president learned in his three years in office? the markets closed flat for the day mostly, and flat for the week. tonight we're getting hard numbers on what falling off the fiscal cliff could mean and what it could cost the markets, 20%, at the very least. so how is congress going about it? earlier today the house went into recess until after the election and the senate wraps up tonight and we'll look at washington at work or not, but first up, after months of resisting and saying he's done what's required, mitt romney put out a friday surprise and released his 2011 tax return and nbc's john harwood joins us. >> reporter: good evening, joe. mitt romney promised when he released preliminary estimates that he would release these returns before the election and now he's done it. he actually reported les
a bipartisan consensus in the united states for many years that the u.s. and israel are the closest of allies, that we have to tackle problems in the middle east together. it's why you see legislation passing the united states senate 99-0 when it comes to confronting iran's nuclear ambitions and supporting -- supporting our closest ally israel, so it's a very strange position for him. it's really out of -- really out of sync with a broad bipartisan consensus in this country. >> jeb, let me go to you. i want to go back to libya and benghazi and that whole story. front page "new york times." we lost most of our intelligence assets because of this snafu, because of this mistake. the cia lost a lot of intelligence assets. we may be wiped out. now, again, president obama in the "60 minutes" last night could not get himself to say that this was premeditated, that this was a terrorist plot. he's still hanging on to the video story which, as you know, is a falsehood. i call it a lie. i believe ambassador, u.n. ambassador susan rice, should have been made to resign, or she should have taken the honora
